"We can’t have a Warhammer 40K wedding!"

"Why not?"

"Well, firstly, your family would never agree to dress up for it, and, secondly, my family almost certainly would."

Min: Resplendent in Red and Bronze, alive with thrumming augmetics
Lucy: Adorned in Midnight Blue robes, emblazoned with Ocular Sigils

Cardinal Sean Presides

Sean: Do you, Min, take Navigator Lucy of the Astra Telepathica to be your divinely sanctioned wife, in the eternal presence of the Machine God?

Min: Binaric Chatter

Sean: Do you, Lucy, take Adept Min of the Mechanicum of Mars to be your soul bonded partner against the ravages of the Warp, by the manifest will of the Astronomican?

Lucy: 

Room temperature falls, several spontaneous nosebleeds break out amongst the congregation.

Sean: Then, by the authority allotted to me by the Ecclesiarch of the Adeptus Ministorum, I declare union initiated.

Lucy enters Noospheric Radius, Union is achieved

Stunned applause

Astropathic Choir commence transmission

Imperator Class Titan stationed at the back discharges triumphal volley

The O.V. with Wyverns Rampant, Leonard Kessen, 1985; official logo for the publication Occulted Vectors.

Occult Vectors was a British small press magazine which ran from 1986 to 1992, and dealt with themes of religion, philosophy, science, and the occult. Operating from its offices in Coventry, it achieved a small but widespread circulation, and remained in intermittent publication until the death of its chief editor, Thomas Berwick, in 1996. Its contributors included novelists Harold Clarke and Miriam Archer, historian Linda Franklin, and the film maker Nasrin Blake.

Kenneth Grant is also rumoured to have been involved in its inception, operating under the pseudonym Kenneth Penrose (which some speculate to be a portmanteau of Pendragon and Rose, in reference to the Rosicrucian movement).

Perhaps its most influential contributor, however, is the journalist, occultist, and sometime actor Jack Londinium (another apparent pseudonym). His seminal essay Vistas of the Quilphoth, has seen renewed interest in recent years, and can be read here.

The story of Occult Vectors is one of contradiction, and high strangeness. Over the next few months, Project Praterlimina is going to be unearthing numerous relics from the history of the magazine, starting with a letter forwarded to our editors last week…

Photo 30 Sep 2 notes In honour of Coming Out Day, here’s a sneaky look at he new print I bought. It’s Tamara de Lempicka’s Duchess of La Salle. She’s very proud to be out of the tube, and hopes to continue being emblematic of independent female sexuality on my living room wall.

"Language is always changing. Shakespeare used different spellings. There’s no point being stuffy and prescriptive about how I write."

I dunno, how about giving a fuck about people with dyslexia, reading difficulties, or people who don’t have English as a first language? Give them a thought next time you consider being a daring linguistic pioneer.
